flow and that's helping push that fog coverage away. here's that low that brought us crazy winds monday, tuesday. now it's moved further east hovering over montana, colorado, also may see some storm action from this the rockies getting snow, as well. for us by this moving out of the way, it's making room for our high pressure that's going to bring us more sunshine so temperatures will be rising this weekend. so by saturday, sunday, we are going to see quite the bump. today's going to be warmer than yesterday. tomorrow will be warmer than today. it will continue that upward trend which you will see in that seven-day forecast. as far as temperatures for today go, 83 degrees the high in concord. 84 in fairfield. napa 81 degrees. look at that seven-day forecast. here you go for the weekend. temperatures mid-90s in time for fleet week. sunshine in store 80s around the bay and mid-70s at the beaches. jaclyn? >> neda, thank you. and we continue to monitor this situation along southbound 101. a traffic alert is in effect
